I was surprised at what stood out to me from Glamour’s preview of J. Crew’s spring 2012 accessories – the bags! I’m typically not a bag girl. I’ve never splurged on a bag – I usually go for cheapys because I don’t really take care of them. I’d much rather spend more on a great pair of shoes. But these bags really got me excited.
Check out the structured leopard print bag! The small satchels are also really cute.
I love the red, white, and blue leather bag. It looks nautical/beach club-ish, but the leather makes it more luxurious.
I think the oversized patterned clutches are my fave! I love the prints.
Are you a shoe girl or a bag girl?
Pretty much anything nautical-themed reminds me of home. I grew up on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, and spent summers as a kid taking sailing lessons and going out on my dad’s beetlecat. So when I got today’s email from Kiel James Patrick and saw the Overboard Knot Earrings, I instantly thought of home.
They also come in red, blue, and orange, and guess what – they’re clip-ons! I just love these – they’re elegant but casual, and bring my mind straight to the ocean.
